‘Sharp Eraser’ Photoshop Eraser Tool
Comparison between Photoshop and GrutBrushes Eraser Tools
Photoshop’s default eraser, has a soft edge, even with the hardness set at 100%. GrutBrushes Sharp Eraser is an eraser tool for Photoshop that gives you a sharp, but still ever so slightly anti-aliased edge that is crisper than Photoshop’s much softer default eraser.
‘Graph Paper’ Photoshop Fill Tool
Turn any paper texture into graph paper
This graph paper tool preset will quickly fill a blank layer with a graph texture grid. Apply it to an empty layer and any paper (or other) texture below it will be instantly turned into graph paper. Not simply a flat grid of blue lines, this grid texture has an organic, print-like texture for a more integrated appearance.
‘Square Crop’ Photoshop Crop Tool Preset
This preset quickly sets the crop tool with a Square 1:1 ratio
If you frequently need to crop a lot of images to a square 1:1 ratio format, (for instagram for example) add this preset to your GrutBrushes Tool Panel for quick access. This simply selects the Crop tool and restricts it to a perfect square (width to height ratio of 1 to 1) to quickly trim the edges off your rectangular pictures.
